    Holding out to see if I can get a 3g compatible charger/holder/transmitter in one, but so far no luck. Ill just order this thing if I can't find something soon.

    There is a company called Brodit, who make mount kit’s for almost everything, they have a mount kit for the 1 gen iPhone, and i’ve spoken with them, and they say, that they will present mount kits for the 3G iPhone in August.

    PCooper08, im interested in buying from this company for my iPhone 3g. Can you tell me if the speaker and mic from the iPhone is exposed? or is it covered by the cradle holder? I plan to use the headphone jack for the aux on my cd player and then use the mic from the iPhone for incoming calls. Thanks

    haven't found anything interesting in hardwire car mounts that display data too. The parrot ck 3100 looks nice but no mount to charge the 3g unit.

    I am using a tilt and swivel mount from proclip. It is also adjustable so it will fit my 3G. It is a two part system one specific to the vehicle and location in the car. The other to the type of unit you want to mount. In my case the bracket holds my 3G and TomTom 920.

    I just use my iPod connector built into my car, so it charges and connects calls to the car speakers via Bluetooth. My friend uses a belkin one that charges all iPods and iPhones and it connects music via fm. I'll check the model out for you.

    I run an iPhone accessory site. We only stock one which is unbranded, but we find it popular with customers - it's a 7 in 1 FM transmitter, and gets good reviews from people.

    iPhone 3G Mount Options - 10 from ARKON

    I'm using ARKON's new IPM129-SBH Removable Air Vent Mount. It was an essential since I also just got the TomTom GPS software. If you're using GPS with your iPhone, then having a good mount is an essential rather than just another cool accessory. After all, if you're using your iPhone with GPS, you're not going to sit the phone on the dash or in a cup holder slot since you need to be able to look at the screen.

    ARKON has by far the largest selection of passive car mounts and holders for the iPhone 3G and iPhone original. The one I have is the removable air vent mount. The pedestal that connects to the iPhone specific cradle allows for 360 degree viewing on a swivel ball type connection. So I'm using my GPS in landscape mode.

    The other ARKON mounts that are probably suitable for use with the iPhone 3G when you're using GPS are all those that keep the iPhone up high in the car so you can see it, without taking your eyes of the road.

    For the iPhone, there's a windshield suction mount, Sun Visor Mount, friction dashboard bean bag style mount, and adhesive dashboard mount discs that work with the windshield suction pedestal. All of these are good, inexpensive high quality options. Pair them with a car charger and you're good to go.

    This is awsome, saw it on gizmodo and bought it. Works in any car and any phone ( useful as i travel for work and rent cars and my girlfriend can use it with her htc. I like it because it doesn't leave a mark or require perminant fitting, you can take it out at any time.

    Www.breffo.com. The mount is called spiderpodium

    Just got this the other day. This sticks to the dash with no additional plate and will hold any phone. No hooks or snaps to hold.

    I got the Proclipusa.com mount for my 2001 Nissan Pathfinder. I rigged something up about 2 years ago for my 3G, but this time I went for something MADE for my device. Couldn't be happier- unless I could turn it on it's side, but I never use it like that in the car, so I am good!

    Posts #15 & 16 have pics of it installed. I use it with the Griffin AutoPilot and it's a perfect setup for me.
